PHILADELPHIA -- It didn't fall easily, but the Brewers ' longest losing streak of the season did finally fall. They scored four times in the top of the third against Phillies starter Jeremy Hellickson thanks to Eric Thames' two-out walk Adam McCalvy has covered the Brewers for MLB .com since 2001.

Cincinnati started quickly with three runs in the second inning, and then really poured things on with six runs in the sixth inning en route to a 10-4 victory.

Billy Hamilton led the Reds with two hits, two runs scored, three RBIs and a walk. Known as a base-stealing specialist, Hamilton has become more well-rounded during the last two seasons.

The Reds have some solid pieces with Joey Votto and Adam Duvall providing power and Hamilton and Jose Peraza adding speed. Raisel Iglesias has turned into an elite closer, but Cincinnati's rotation and depth issues will likely play a factor all season.
